Gotta give Clarke his due, that's for sure...don't know the others well enough, and I do admit I have a narrow range of what passes for "great bass" player I suppose...I just love Bruce, and though I've said it many times, I love that line by John Mayall or whomever about the times with the ManfmanBand in which Bruce would show up without practicing, play all the new songs perfectly and they all wondered how he did it, and JM said "he told me the changes and sequences were all self evident", but not in a smug way (or somehting like that...). Musical genius, IMHO.
